Re: Installable config.h files

Do I understand it correctly that one would have to create the template file manually? Hmmm.

May I put a pointer here to that alternative with a pkg-config.h 
derived from standard config.h? It has served as a good basis for me.
The generated pkg-config.h will then be included by a project specific 
(and installable) header file that adds defines with a longer body
based on the features detected during `configure`-time.

Apart from this, I'd like to remind eveyone that the real cause of
config.h being non-installable is the fact that there is no way to have
multiple inclusions of config.h files from different (sub-)projects
since the feature-defs are not ifndef'ed. A lot of redefined-warnings
would come up that would not look nice - and the project seriously
buggy which it wouldn't needfully be. Everything would be a bit
easier if the feature-defs would read:
#define HAVE_SYS_TIME_H 1
but may be there is an intention about the non-ifdef scheme?
